Hilary Duff & Her Boyfriend's Pilgrim Costume

People are not happy with the couple after they attended a Halloween party dressed up as a Native American “chief” and a sexy pilgrim.

Her trainer boyfriend was slammed on Twitter for cultural appropriation, especially in light of the Dakota Access Pipeline protests which threatens many sacred Native American sites.

The 29-year-old apologized on Twitter, saying, “I am SO sorry to people I offended with my costume. It was not properly thought through and I am truly, from the bottom of my [heart] sorry.”

Chris Hemsworth's First Nations Costume

Chris Hemsworth's First Nations Costume
At least in this case, Chris owned up to his wrong-doing. He wrote on Instagram, "Standing with those who are fighting to protect their sacred land and water. #nodapl #waterislife #mniwiconi @taikawaititi. I would also like to take this opportunity to raise something that has been bothering me for sometime. Last New Year's Eve I was at a "Lone Ranger" themed party where some of us, myself included, wore the traditional dress of First Nations people. I was stupidly unaware of the offence this may have caused and the sensitivity around this issue. I sincerely and unreservedly apologise to all First Nations people for this thoughtless action. I now appreciate that there is a great need for a deeper understanding of the complex and extensive issues facing indigenous communities. I hope that in highlighting my own ignorance I can help in some small way."
